Winter bear

I do hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas!  Kristina H here with some wintery cuteness to share with you today.


Gosh, this was just so fun to make!  I used the Creative Expressions Stitched Collection - Christmas Characters die set.  Let me tell you, there are a lot of dies in this set!


The good news is that they include a handy dandy guide for all the pieces!  That way you know what you need for each character and where to find them!



I located all of the different pieces I needed for the bear and frame.  I then picked out all of the papers I wanted to use and got to cutting! Fast forward a little bit (LOL) and I've got a tiny pile of paper bits.  I went to the handy guide and started piecing everything together.

For the purple scarf I did add a little detail with a Copic marker that matched.  For the bear's cheeks I added a touch of pink marker and the ears a little bit of gray.  I cut a piece of heavy, white cardstock to an A2 top fold card base.  I glued on the blue patterned paper.  Then came the white frame.  I did add foam tape to pop it up.  Then I slipped in the hanger at the top and went over it with Wink of Stella.  I added a glitter enamel dot on top of it.  Then I carefully tucked the bear into place.

For a little bit extra detail, I went all around the outside of the bear with a T3 gray, Copic marker.  This helps to give it a shadow so it looks like there is another layer.  That's it.  This die set looks a bit overwhelming but I promise it was super easy!
